Product description


Posters urge people to enlist, vote, join, buy or boycott. Published to accompany a touring exhibition starting in March 1998 at the National Museum of American Art, Washington, DC, this is a study of American posters of the last 100 years, their impact and their place in art history. It depicts 120 examples, including work by some of the most popular American artists and graphic designers of the period. The author draws conclusions about the impact of posters, their context in the history of visual communication and how they challenge long-held conventions about the gap between high and low art. Also included are discussion of the technological advances of the last century, and biographies of the artists.
